nwanja

nice job mola tande.your description of te conduct of the liengu rites are exhaustive. however,while the rites were performed as initiation for women and curative to certain illnesses , the article gives the erroneous impression that the rites were meant only for the purpose stated supra. i add therefore that the liengu or water spirit was believed to bless its favorites with children, rendered the barren fertile and blessed them with good catches during fishing.
it was equally believed thatmembers had the power to disappear in times of danger. yes, permit me stress that the liengu society being largely feminine, acted as a check to infidelity amongst women and guarded young girls up till marrige.the conscious or unconscious distrction of this societies, lebelling them "peganic" and "superstitious" by some of our "modern tribesmen" constitutes the undebelly of our society today and accounts for the moral decadence thet rocks us . but i,m not going to take this lying . we must sustain our cultural values especially positive valus.

This is The Real "Ekiinyoh Emmanuel Ndinayi" and i am quite offended by the impersonation above as concerns me.I am no fan of such nonsense and the person who wrote it better be happy he got away with it.Celebrity impersonation is a crime punishable by the Cameroon Law and it has been happening to me alot but this time it went too far.My real email is emmandinayi@yahoo.com .Please contact me if you can get rid of this horrible record for good.Coming along with that you will have a free signed CD of my latest track.
Thanks and waiting

Ekiinyoh, you are a celebrity? One thing you learn as a celebrity is that fans and the Enquirer and gossip columnists make up stuff about you. Your job is to ignore them. Any publicity is better than none. The day they stop talking about you, you know you are dead as a celebrity. How come I never heard about you?
